    I've actually been playing with two 3GS phones here
    1) 05.14.02 / 4.1 trap xx938 old boot rom ICE2 BOOT 06.04 G2M352. So I think I'm going to 6.15 and IOS 5.1 - will lose GPS but at least untethered (this is my main requirement)

    2) 05.13.04 / version 4.0.1 xx950 new boot rom (So I think I could upgrade to 5.1 without losing GPS but it would be tethered?)

    You guys reckon they will ever solve the tether problem on the 3GS or not enough interest?
    Sorry for all the dumb questions, but If I'd found Simon's nice guide rather than the one in the sticky I'd have been talking sense sooner!

    Ya, new bootrom will be tethered on 5.1. I am sure there will be a untether at somepoint but could take a while. Before 5.1 came out 5.0.1 was untethered for all idevices for a while.

    Are the back of both the phones bright silver writing where it says iPhone.

    1, yes that'd be untethered (old bootrom) but you'd loose gps on 6.15.00.

    2, yes it would be tethered because it's new bootrom but you wouldn't loose gps with that modem firmware.
